Established in 1929, the Racquets Club is a private, family-oriented club located in the heart of Old Short Hills. It offers swimming, tennis, platform tennis, squash and social activities for its membership of all ages. A year round athletic and social calendar has made the club an ideal place to gather for recreation and relaxation.
The clubhouse offers both formal elegance and relaxed informality. It is a great venue for special gatherings such as birthdays, weddings, school functions and professional meetings, as well as daily dining for members. In addition, during the summer months, there is alfresco dining and a poolside snack bar.
Our club’s greatest asset is its membership. We welcome people of diverse backgrounds and interests who would like to contribute to our feeling of community
The Racquets Club in 2015
The Racquets Club has recently completed Phase 1 of a large scale renovation project. This phase includes a complete renovation of the Hobart Grill which is located on the ground level of the club house. The entrance to the ground level was updated with new finishes. New bathrooms and a kids play area were also created.
This phase also focused on areas outside of the club house. 4 brand new hydro-court tennis courts replaced the dated har-tru courts on the far side of the property. The pool was completely stripped down and a marbolite finish was added, this creates a smoother surface which will last for years to come.
